Intrepid Travel Review: Pros and Cons
Lots of destinations: With trips on every continent, Intrepid offers a huge variety of destinations to suit every taste.
Low stress: Travel planning can be hard and stressful. Intrepid takes all of that off your hands, arranging every part of every itinerary.
Responsibility: Travel can occasionally be a harmful thing as well, and Intrepid do everything in their power to be as responsible as they can.
Earn 2,500 Qantas Frequent Flyer points: For every trip booked over $1000 you can earn 2,500 points. QFF terms and conditions apply.
Little room for spontaneity: Part of travelling is testing yourself, throwing yourself into new situations and responding accordingly. It could be argued that Intrepid takes part of the overall experience away from you.
No age restrictions: Budget travellers looking for a tour with just young people won't be guaranteed an age group.
Hardcore: Remember this is adventure travel, so if you’re after two weeks at an “all inclusive”, Intrepid is not the place for you.

What do I need to know before booking an Intrepid tour?
What are Intrepid tours like?
Intrepid tours are designed for small groups looking for big adventures. With a maximum group size of 16 on most trips, the tours will often use local transport rather than tourist coaches, and bring travellers to smaller, locally owned accommodation and restaurants. There's a strong focus on local culture on tour and a small chance you'll find yourself at a familiar fast food chain.
Do Intrepid tours include airfare?
Intrepid tours do not include airfare from your home country. Some trips do include domestic flights or flights taken during the tour. This will be displayed by a small plane symbol on the trip's map.
What's Intrepid's age limit on tours?
The minimum age to travel with Intrepid is 15 years old, but you must be travelling with an adult if you're younger than 18.
Intrepid doesn't have an upper age limit on its tours. Each tour does have a physical rating out of five, which is important to note for those who are less mobile. It's also important to keep in mind that Intrepid's tours are not highly catered coach tours, and transport is often on local busses, planes and boats.
Is Intrepid reliable?
Intrepid Travel has been operating tours since 1989, and has been profitable since 1991. When you book a tour, funds are deposited into a secure account so that in the event anything happens to the company before your tour you will be able to get your money back.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
